Thread: Essential Nitecore Light(s)

  1. #1

    Default Essential Nitecore Light(s)

    I would like to buy a Nitecore flashlight , but I'm having a difficult time deciding which one to buy . Is there an iconic model ? Perhaps the ( new ) P12? Should I consider another one such as the MH10 V2 or the MH12 V2 ? Please sound off as to those Nitecore lights that are popular with members here . Thanks in advance ...

    Yes it looks like the new MH10 and MH12 are both USB-C rechargeable, uses the larger 21700 cell, and the LED is the more efficient CREE XP-L2 upgraded from XP-L. The only difference appears to be the new MH10 v2 uses a 4 Amp cell and the new MH12 v2 includes a 5 Amp cell for $10 more.

    For a Nitecore single XP-L2 I donít think weíre in any need of super high discharge hot rod cell. Maybe spend the extra $10 and get the longer runtime?

    I hope they fixed the USB cover on the MH12. My V1 kept popping open and had to glue it shut.

    TM9K. Check it out. I like mine more and more every day. It has normal modes, and max mode is really max. No holding back.
    It has been one year since an Arlington police officer defended himself against a loose, charging dog. In this case, someone other than the dogs' owner did Not reap the initial tragic consequences. Usually it is an innocent victim that gets it.

    So are you recommending the MH10 V2 and/or MH12 V2 as fitting the category of an essential and iconic first Nitecore light ?

    Thanks for the recommendation , but it doesn't seem to fit the category as one of Nitecore's most iconic and popular lights .

    Hi 1Yorick, yes, I think the most iconic is their Explorer series. However, their new MH10 and MH12 V2 looks pretty good on paper.

    My first Nitecore was the EA41, and itís still available. The first iconic Nitecore was the Tiny Monster series, TM11 followed by the TM15.
